Richard Hanson - Mills & Reeve LLP

Within: Property litigation

Mills & Reeve LLP's practice ‘gets to the heart of the issue and finds a resolution‘. The 'very experienced, level-headed and able' Richard Hanson leads the national practice, which counts Countrywide Legal Indemnities and Urban&Civic Group among its clients. Principal associate James Hordern is ‘able to interpret complex legal matters, understand the core issue at stake and efficiently advise how best to proceed‘. One client notes that he is ‘extremely comfortable with detail, and quickly reads into the very complex technical and engineering aspects of a case; he marries both legal and case law knowledge with the technical, non-legal aspects incredibly effectively'. He advised an agricultural investment company on a £5m dispute arising from the operation of biomass boilers. 'Exceptionally astute' principal associate Julian Steed  is 'a very able lawyer with an unusual capacity for independent analysis of the legal merits of the cases'.
